The Face of Animals took her unhiring gracefully (she had a day job at the
local zoo), but the Face of Advice immediately burst into tears. This was
followed by pleading ("The girls need me!"), hysteria (hiccupy sobbing),
threats ("I want my image taken off the site immediately!") and although I'm
no therapist, what seemed like suicidal ideation ("This job meant everything
to me! It was my life!"). To make matters worse, I canceled the Face of
Advice's upcoming story, "How to Deal With Rejection." A couple days later,
I called to see how she was doing. "I still can't believe I'm being fired!"
she wailed. "Oh, no," I assured her. "You're not being fired. You're just
being, you know, unhired." It didn't sound that strange at the time.

I just can't believe the depths of stupidity that .coms hit. I mean,
how where they expecting to make money anyway?

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
